In the likeness of Ansel Adams

Some of you may know that I’ve been doing a diploma course in photography.  I’ve been learning about all sorts of genres and it has taken me out of my comfort zone, but that was to be expected. Some of it I’ve enjoyed more than other parts but, all the same, I’m getting through the course and learning a great deal.

Recently we had to pick our favourite B&W photographer and have a go at doing photography like them. We were given a list of names and I chose Ansel Adams. I’ve come across his work in the past when doing research on photography and I like his work. So I was quite pleased with the results of this part of the course.  We had to choose a location we liked and the subject was a ‘Sense of Place’. I chose the Trestle Bridge near home which the Puffing Billy travels on.  We had to do landscape, portrait and close up.

If you’ve been thinking about the Steve Parish Nature Photography Workshop being held in Belgrave Heights next month, don’t leave it much longer. Bookings will be closing very soon.
